Who would *still* be unable to play Halo or World of Warcraft :-)

Or, come to think of it, watch the ads on any of those PPC Linux
systems demonstrated at CLUG last night - "Flash for Linux" has

The networking ad could certainly have included the Linux
character demonstrating how he could share porn faster, more
